The Epic Downfall Of The Casino That Was Supposed To Save Atlantic City

The Epic Downfall Of The Casino That Was Supposed To Save Atlantic City | TheBottomlineNow | Scoop.it
Revel prepares for bankruptcy.
Reginald Shipman's insight:

This situation at the Revel is a classic example of everyone trying to have it's cake and eat it too.  An overly ambitious project with Morgan Stanley"s blessing the funding (@2.2 Billion Dollars that turned into a 1.2 billion dollar write down, wow.   A billion lost out the gate on the lending.  Poof into thin air. )  This happens when overpriced contractors and professionals are able to slick seasoned (and I say this loosely) professionals out of  close to a billion dollars. Does this look like a scam?(yes)  But probably it's not.  This was just bad underwriting from the jump (unless you were one of those overpriced professionals or contractors.  Then it was good eating.)  It doesn't matter how slick something looks if you can't get the money back (market demand will never bend to you.  You have to bend to market demand.).  Now the investors, taxpayers and the employees of this massive white elephant will be left holding the bag.   You can't take all the money up front and really expect any project to succeed.  Unless your strategy was to take all the money up front (in skims from the contractors.).  Why take it in skims?   Skims can't be taxed.

‘Iron Man 3′ Vanquishes Doubts Over Disney’s Marvel Buy

‘Iron Man 3′ Vanquishes Doubts Over Disney’s Marvel Buy | TheBottomlineNow | Scoop.it
When Chief Executive Robert Iger opens the Walt Disney Co. (DIS) post-earnings conference call to questions late Tuesday, he won’t be asked again to justify the $4 billion he spent in 2009 to acquire Marvel Entertainment.
Reginald Shipman's insight:

Doubters are always late for something that just makes sense.  Disney and Marvel, this is just a a marriage that just made sense.  Disney for it's financial muscle and Marvel for it's maturing techno market that now have great jobs and love to see their comic book icons on the big screen.  the question here was alway execution and Disney is known for making magic happen.
